American Luthier visits

Just before my house move a few months ago, Californian luthier Paul Hostetter and his wife Robin visited. Paul bought one of my Model 1 Sicilian guitars around twenty years ago, and while he was here played my latest Blackwood and figured Sitka MS model.  He clearly liked it a lot, and a week or so later Robin called and asked to buy it.

Here is Paul with the MS in sunny California.  He pointed out that quite coincidentally the guitar that reminded me of John Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath (News 22 April) had come home to live in Steinbeck country.
